Train to Teach

We always welcome people who want to discuss routes into teaching – we might be biased but we believe there is no better job than teaching young people and shaping the next generation! We would encourage anyone thinking of teaching to get in touch so that they can come to visit and find out more (

We are proud to be a partner school of Xavier Teach SouthEast, a SCITT provider (School Centred Initial Teacher Training). Xavier Teach SouthEast provides all trainees with high quality training, in both primary and secondary settings, to enable them to develop into competent and confident professionals. Trainees are well prepared through first-rate complementary placements which ensure that they gain substantial practical experience, developing their evaluative and practical teaching skills effectively. In-school expert mentors and external subject trainers have consistently high expectations and work collaboratively to ensure training is coherent and highly relevant to the needs of trainees.

What is an alumni association?

The alumni is an association of former students and staff. In the past, they were often considered to be the school’s old boy/girl society. Today, alumni associations involve former students and staff of all age groups and demographics. Lifelong friendships are formed at school. Former students and staff remember their school days with great affection.


The SJB Alumni Association is open to all former students and staff. We like to stay in touch with our ex-students and we take a keen interest in their lives once they have graduated. The Alumni will have access to school newsletters covering recent and forthcoming events. We are also delighted to facilitate networking opportunities amongst past pupils. Many of them revisit to talk to existing students about university, Art College, their chosen career paths or often just to say hello!

At SJB, we are very proud to support an alumni network that extends across the country and abroad.

In Year Guidance

St John the Baptist School was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families. The school is conducted by its governing body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with the trust deed of the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton, its articles of association, and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ.

St John the Baptist School is part of the Xavier Catholic Education Trust.

As a Catholic school, the governors aim to provide a Catholic education for all pupils. At a Catholic school, Catholic doctrine and practice permeate every aspect of the school’s activity. The governors ask all parents applying for a place to respect this ethos and its importance to the school community.

Although Catholic children have priority of admission, this does not affect the right of an applicant who is not Catholic to apply for a place for their child at the school. The school welcomes applications from those of other denominations and faiths, or of none.

The school primarily serves the Catholic community of the Woking Deanery, which comprises the parishes of Woking, Camberley, Camberley North with Bagshot, Frimley, Knaphill and West Byfleet. The deanery primary schools located in that community which are the feeder schools for St John the Baptist School are:

  • St Dunstan’s Primary School, Woking
  • St Augustine’s Primary School, Camberley
  • St Hugh of Lincoln Primary School, Knaphill
  • The Marist Primary School, West Byfleet

We encourage parents to visit our school in order to find out more about how we work and the education that we offer. Parents are welcome to arrange a visit by contacting the school office. Such visits, however, are not obligatory and do not form part of the process of deciding which children are to be offered a place at the school. If you would like to visit the school to discuss the entry of your child please telephone our Admissions Manager:

Mrs Claire Antal on 01483 729343 ext 123

A New Parents’ Evening is held in July for all new students, their parents and families. Parents and prospective students are also welcome to visit the school at any time. Students are admitted to all other year groups only if places are available. Parents are requested to make an appointment to see the Deputy Head, Mr Damien Kelly.


Please find the timetable for appeals on the left menu. If you have any queries please contact the Admissions Manager for further information.
